About the property

Country Villa in the beautiful Morra Valley near Citta Di Castello, Italy - Stunning Views Over Morra Valley And Tuscan-Umbrian Hills; An Ideal Country Retreat

Welcome to Casa Nova, our stylishly renovated Italian countryside villa. This bright and sunny three-bed, three-bath house is situated on the top of a winding country lane, in the rolling hills of the Tuscan and Umbrian border. Set in two acres of land with its own private swimming pool, it's surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, making it perfect for an idyllic Italian holiday. The property was redecorated and renovated in 2012 to high standards.

About Rich Birch

Hello, we're Ros and David and thank you for stopping by to read about our Italian holiday villa! We bought Casa Nova in 2000 after falling in love with the Umbrian-Tuscan region, and hope our guests will do so too. We visit often from the UK to make sure the villa is in pristine condition, and although we are not on-site all year round, our lovely Italian housekeepers Bruno and Carla will be there to welcome you and pay attention to your needs. Carla will also prepare a welcome hamper full of locally-sourced treats on your arrival. Our son, Richard, takes care of bookings for us and will see that you are provided with an online a welcome pack, with all details that you need to know about Casa Nova and the surrounding area, including a UK contact phone number for us so that you may call us with any enquiries.

Wonderful, a beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Nova is a beautiful place to stay. The house itself is lovely, each room tastefully decorated and it is equipped with everything you need. The pool area is breath taking, we so enjoyed sitting there every morning. We are missing it already.

Our second visit to Casa Nova. The house is very well furnished and equipped with all you need for a restful stay. The pool area is superb, and we spent several days just lounging around sunbathing and swimming. It is completely private with no overlooking properties. Carla and Bruno are marvellous and helped in every way possible - nothing was too much trouble. This is a lovely part of Italy and we would recommend visits to Gubbio, Arrezo, Montone, Assisi and Ubino. The roads are free from tourist traffic and this encourages exploration. You would need to be careful of small children because of the steep drops in the garden. A real find - we will probably go next year as well.

Beautiful Location - Great Views

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were welcomed very warmly by the housekeepers Carla and Bruno. The villa, grounds and pool were spotless and the house is very well appointed. The villa is in a beautiful setting high up on the side of the valley with great views over the surrounding hills. The kids (9yrs and 3yrs) adored the pool - lots of swimming; the non slip liner is a good feature. Loads to see and do in the local area and further afield - Gubbio, Cortona, Castiglion. Although it was very easy to spend a day relaxing at the villa itself.

Lovely place !

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a short 4 day break staying here. Its situated in the beautiful Morra Valley which provides a stunning background when you are lounging around the house. The house itself has recently been refurbished, tastefully decorated. The swimming pool is great way to unwind and refresh from the Italian sunshine . You need a car to get around but there's a lot of historical towns close by to explore and we hired some road bikes from Citta de Castello and cycled around too. A great little find. Highly recommended if you want to recharge and refresh !
